Hurricanes sign Riley Nash to three-year deal
At the NHL level, the Hurricanes say the deal will pay Nash $550,000 in 2010-11, $600,000 in 2011-12, and $700,000 in 2012-13. He will be paid $65,000 on the AHL level in all three seasons, and receives a signing bonus of $262,500.

Nash, 21, completed his third season at Cornell University in 2009-10, scoring 12 goals and earning 23 assists for 35 points in 30 games. The Consort, Alta., native led Cornell in assists, and was tied for second on the team in scoring. In three seasons with the Big Red, Nash scored 37 goals and added 65 assists for 102 points in 102 collegiate games.

"Riley has excellent playmaking ability from the center position, and was a consistent point-producer at Cornell," said Jason Karmanos, Carolina's Vice President and Assistant General Manager. "He'll have an opportunity during training camp to earn a spot on our NHL roster."

Edmonton took Nash with the 21st pick in the 2007 Entry Draft. The Hurricanes acquired him in change for Ottawa's second-round pick (No. 46) in this year's draft.
Quote of the Day

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
